On the morning of 12th April, Shri Narendra Modi addressed a massive rally at Pachpadra in Barmer, Rajasthan, and affirmed of giving special emphasis towards the development of desert lands under the BJP government. Shri Modi shared a promising vision of the BJP which would give the arid lands of Rajasthan a major boost in its activities and take the State ahead of the others, on the growth front.

Asserting the BJP’s special emphasis on good governance (sushasan) and development (vikas), Shri Modi affirmed that a separate focus would also be given to the desert states. He recalled the makeover given to Kutch, under his Chief Ministership, which enabled the region to develop immensely, and the result of which can be seen today when the desert land of Kutch has started yielding bumper crops. When I became CM, Gujarat was reeling under the effects of a severe quake. People were leaving and the situation was bad. But see Kutch today, it is among the fastest growing districts of India. We got water for BSF jawans, and Kutch has left a mark in agriculture and it is exporting mangoes. If Kutch can do it, why can’t Barmer,” said Shri Modi. He also reinforced the BJP’s focus on making Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee ji ‘s dream of linking rivers come true, and thereby ensure the reach of adequate water for the people.

Stating the vast potential of Rajasthan’s gas and petroleum reserves, Shri Modi affirmed that under the BJP, emphasis would be given towards exploring this sector and capitalizing on it for the prosperity of the people. Citing the tremendous scope it entailed, Shri Modi urged the youth to pursue a career in the petroleum industry and await greater opportunities under the BJP government. Shri Modi also spoke of how Gujarat had successfully tapped its solar potential, while the Ashok Gehlot government in Rajasthan had only indulged in ‘damad power’ (referring to the solar scam involving Robert Vadra), wherein land worth crores, meant for solar panels, were given away to the ‘damad’ for personal gains.

Speaking on bringing back the black money stacked in foreign banks, Shri Modi spoke of the Congress’ reluctance in pursuing this, and mentioned the recent complaint made to the Election Commission against former Punjab CM from the Congress Shri Amarinder Singh, of hiding his bank details. “A question has been asked whether his family has accounts in Geneva. These are answers needed from Amarinder Singh. If he is innocent, the Congress should speak for him and state that their former CM and his family is clean,” said Shri Modi. He urged the Election Commission to seek a probe in the matter, and affirmed, “EC has got this complaint and before they vote, the people have a right to know the truth. If the Congress cannot place the truth about their own CM in front of the nation, then the Government after 16th May will place everything in front of the people.”

Shri Modi exposed the partial nature of the Congress in welcoming refugees from the borders, saying their decisions were guided solely by votebank politics. “It pains me how votebank politics has weakened our nation and caused divisions. We need to save India from it. If a Bangladeshi comes in, he or she is welcome and all rules are broken. But what about those who fled Pakistan and are shouting Bharat Mata Ki Jai. They have come from Pakistan not for any ulterior motives but they are shouting Bharat Mata Ki Jai. I assure we will take care of them,” said Shri Modi.

Shri Modi also condemned the efforts of the Congress to censure the BJP and Shri Modi, through misleading claims and false allegations, and said that none of these had lessened the peoples’ preference to support Shri Modi. He stated how the Congress had misused institutes of repute to defame Shri Modi, and stated that these efforts of theirs was because of their fear of where they would land after the declaration of results on 16th May.

Acknowledging the people’s presence in large numbers, Shri Modi said that their blessings gave him the strength to take the lead and bring the change the Nation deserves. He appealed to the people to vote for the BJP and take the lead in wiping out the Congress and its allies.

PM Modi addresses a public meeting in Shimla, Himachal Pradesh

Weak Congress government used to plead around the world: PM Modi in Shimla, HP
Congress left the border areas of India to their fate: PM Modi in Shimla, HP

Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressed a vibrant public meeting in Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, invoking nostalgia and a forward-looking vision for Himachal Pradesh. The Prime Minister emphasized his longstanding connection with the state and its people, reiterating his commitment to their development and well-being.

“When the country didn't even know Modi, I was among you. Times have changed, but Modi has not changed. Modi's relationship with Himachal remains the same,” PM Modi remarked.

Highlighting his continuous engagement with the state, PM Modi sought the people’s blessings for a third term of the BJP government. He said, “Today, I have come to seek your blessings for the BJP government for the third time. I need your blessings to make India strong, to make India Viksit, and for a developed Himachal. Five phases of elections have already taken place in the country. A BJP-NDA government is assured. Now, Himachal will score a hat-trick with a 4-0 victory. Vote for those who will form the government. What is the point of wasting your vote? So, say with me, ‘Phir Ek Baar, Modi Sarkar.”

Addressing the strategic importance of Himachal Pradesh, a state bordering the frontier, PM Modi underscored the necessity of a robust government. “Himachal Pradesh is a state bordering the frontier. The people of Himachal understand the importance of a strong government. Modi will risk his life for you but will not let any harm come to you. The weak Congress government used to plead around the world. Modi says, why should India go to the world? India will fight its battles on its own.”

The Prime Minister also highlighted the infrastructural developments under his administration, contrasting them with the previous Congress regimes. “This is the same Congress that left the border areas of India to their fate. Modi has given many times more money than Congress. Today, hundreds of kilometers of new roads have been built along the border. Today, the lives of soldiers and our people living near the border have become easier.”

PM Modi highlighted the successful implementation of the One Rank One Pension scheme, a long-standing demand of military personnel fulfilled under his leadership. “Congress made military families yearn for One Rank One Pension for four decades. Congress used to say they would bring OROP by showing just 500 crores. This was a huge insult to our army because it was impossible to implement OROP with just 500 crores. It is Modi who has implemented OROP. Modi has given about 1.25 lakh crore rupees to former soldiers through OROP. That's why people say, Modi delivers what he guarantees.”

PM Modi also spoke about sensitive issues, accusing Congress and the INDI alliance of undermining the reservation system and conspiring against the Ram Temple. “I have come today to warn the people of Himachal about another conspiracy by Congress and the INDI alliance. These people want to completely abolish the reservation for SC-ST-OBC and give it to Muslims. Congress is also opposing the Ram temple. You people of Himachal tell me, did you feel good visiting Ram Lalla? But Congress cannot tolerate the Ram temple. Congress is conspiring to lock the Ram temple. Will you allow the Ram temple to be locked?”

Reaffirming his government's commitment to development, PM Modi listed the various initiatives taken for Himachal Pradesh, including the establishment of prestigious educational institutions and infrastructural projects. “No one thought that institutions like IIIT, IIM, and AIIMS could exist in Himachal. But with Modi, it is possible. Himachal has received a bulk drugs park and a medical device park. Himachal is among the first states in the country where the Vande Bharat train started.”

“Modi has guaranteed to make 3 crore sisters associated with self-help groups ‘Lakhpati Didis.’ Modi has also brought a big scheme to make your electricity bill zero. With the ‘PM Suryaghar Muft Bijli Yojana’ your bill will be zero, and you will also earn thousands of rupees. Just as Modi has fulfilled previous guarantees, Modi will fulfill these guarantees as well,” he added.
